    I've already searched and haven't seen anything on this. I have the phone turned off and I plugged in overnight to charge the battery. In the morning, the green light is on and the icon shows 100% while it is still plugged in. As soon as I unplug it, the battery immediately shows 99%. Is this normal?

    Since it takes power to show you the power level, it can't possibly be 100%. Power was used and no longer available (at least that is how I see it).

    Normal and nothing to worry about, but you may get lucky one day and it will show 100%.

    Correct. The Treo 700P doesn't ride on 100% for a while like other Palm PDA's. It's normal behavior for this device.

    (My Vx used to stay at 100% for quite a while before it started it's downward trail).

    I'm used to getting satisfied by getting 99% (or lower) with my Treo: battery and everything else. Helps lower my frustration while enjoying the power of a converged device.

    Sorry for my random thoughts. Anyway, 99% is really the max you can get on a Treo 700p battery meter even right after I unplug the unit off the charger after it's been fully recharged.

    just another 700p bug
    Visor -> Treo 650 Cingular UNLocked (Cing. Blue Phone on Orange Network) -> vzw 700p -> VZW Centro (much better)

    I only get 100% on my Verizon 700p when it is plugged in. The moment I unplug the charger, the level goes to 99%. This makes sense to me.
